Poor quality car


The worst thing happened was when one of the valves failed at on 72k miles.

Massive engine build but failed on a valve. After all my friends said it's a "Hyundai". Basically what they meant was it's a cheap and nasty car.

I suppose what you pay is what you get.

General Comments:

The interior is so plasticy that you have to be very careful touching it. The outside trims are of poor quality.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
